Tonight on the hit show "19 Kids and Counting" fans got to meet Derick Dillard. Jill Duggar actually went with her dad Jim Bob to meet him for the first time. On Tuesday, Radar Online shared how about how these two would meet each other. It was an interesting night on the show.

These two started talking over the phone and Skype. Jill admitted that she fell in love with him even though she had never met him at all. Derick was introduced to Jill by her dad. Her dad Jim Bob was a prayer partner for Derick and he thought that there was a big chance that they would hit it off. Obviously her dad was right.

As soon as Derick and Jill saw each other she did rush up and give him a side hug. He had flowers for her and Jim Bob even got a hug from him. It was a great first meeting for the two.

Of course the way that the Duggar family does things is different. Jill could give him a hug, but they don't hold hands or kiss until marriage. They take things really slow as they get to know each other, but these two did progress pretty fast. Jill went on the trip on tonight's show planning to meet Derick and hoping that it would turn into courting.

In April, US Magazine shared the news that Jill and Derek are now engaged to each other. He popped the question and she said yes so it is very obvious that they work out. Viewers can't wait to see it all play out on the show during this season. Their wedding hasn't happened yet, but you can easily assume that the TLC cameras will be rolling and catch all of it.

Don't miss new episodes of "19 Kids and Counting" on Tuesday nights. Fans will get to see their relationship play out. Even though they are not courting yet on the show it will be interesting to watch it progress to the point where they are engaged.
